Went to santo Domingo for the weekend and this hotel was more than adequate. The front desk was attentive and informative. The hotel has everything needed for a comfortable stay from a great roof top bar pool to a lounge to a restaurant. Plus is very centrally located.

Amazing experience. Immaculate rooms wide range of variety food-wise. Did not expect such a small inexpensive place to pack so much punch. Incredible nighttime entertainment. Packed onsite night club. Family friendly resort, with amazing staff who really care about your kids. A huge selection of on beach activities (for extra cost) with friendly and polite salespeople. White sand beach, incredible ocean view. There was even an island I swam out to with amazing tropical wide life experiences to be had for the adventurous types.
August 2014. First of all, this was my first time in the Dominican Republic, the view and the beauty of the resort was breath taking. From the time I checked in, to the time I left (1 week later) the service was excellent! Most of the staff spoke a little english which was very helpful to me, I was treated well by everyone I encountered. The entertainment was abundant, from Zumba in the freah morning air to the games which were centered on family fun and dance lessons at the swimming pool. In the evening was the nightly entertainment at the amphitheater, I felt the actors and dancers were impressive and very well rehursed.And as for the beautiful dining area, there was a vast selection of food to choose from, the dining-room attendants were very professional and courteous.
I will be booking my next vacation at this resort in March, I absolutly loved it!
Checking in was a breeze took all of 5 mins. The bell boy Daniel was great! The room was clean, spacious and had a fantastic view (paranomic ocean view.) floor to ceiling windows. If I had to change anything it would only be to have the hotel offer free parking but other than that it was perfect. Loved it wish I could have spent more than two nights there.
It turns out that the hotel has a PADI dive center on site. They rent equipment and sell courses. I brought my own dive gear and they gave me a discounted price for 6 dives over 3 days.
The Presidential Suites were very nice and the ground floor offered a great way to feel part of the beach scene without have to attempt to save a lounge chair in the sand, particularly if you are diving each morning.
In regards to the food, so many of the desserts were some form of marshmellow but they looked as if they'd be much better. Be sure to try the red beans over some white rice. Some of the staff at the buffet would do things such as keep your water glass full while others had to be waved over and asked.
